troops on it is side of the militarize zone separating from south korea. as well as nearly 30,000 u.s. forces. not only are they within strikes distance of the launch site, a long-range rocket shows north korea is on its way to developing technology to launch a rocket at the united states's west coast and hawaii. officials tell cnn that the working assumption is that the north koreans got outside help from others, including iran. so today's launch is raising some huge concerns. let's go to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. i assume they are pretty surprised and alarmed by the successful launch over at the pentagon? >> look, wolf, because of everything you just mentioned, indeed, the u.s. military, the intelligence committee have been watching north korea for days now 24/7 because they did expect to launch and they announced it. but they were having technical problems so a lot thought it wouldn't happen until next week. when it happened last week, there was a surprise. the north korean anchor's excitement was clear. >> announcing the launch of a long-range rocket that put a nor
this morning. it's a big development in the fight against syria and a new level of u.s. involvement. we just learned within the past few hours the defense secretary leon panetta signed an order sending two patriot missile batteries to turkey. that's to assist that nation in defending against any pollible military action by syria. this move was expected as the civil war in syria destabilizes the assad regime with each passing day. in addition to this, 400 u.s. troops are going to turkey. they will be deployed to operate the missile batteries. cnn's nick payton walsh has the development. >> reporter: good morning. 400 personnel will be accompanying the batteries. let me give you history. over the past two months, we saw sporadic exchanges of fire across the border. syrian military firing into turkey causing often destruction and death. turkey often responding. that brought about this request to nato for patriot missile batteries. they're supposed to be there. this particular type better at taking out missiles in the sky rather than taking down aircraft. but this move part of a nato response. a
by the u.s. state department, the number of russian children adopted by american couples has increased significantly in the last few years. in 2004, the number was more than 5800 compared to only 962 last year. over the last 20 years, americans have are adopted more than 60,000 russian children, more than any other country. >> we remain committed to supporting inter-country adoptions between our two countries. the welfare of children is too important to be linked to political aspects of our relationship. >> reporter: the bottom line, says this expert, it is ultimately the children who will suffer because there aren't enough families in russia willing to adopt. >> there are, by some estimates, 700, 750,000 children in orphanages, in institutions in russia. they don't have that many families stepping up. >> reporter: the need is especially great for children with special needs like vatali. >> we rely on our faith and hope in jesus christ and that's what is going to get us through this. but it would just be devastating for those kids. >> reporter: the moyers already have two biological ch
u.s. citizens from adopting russian children. the decision raising tensions between the two countries, seen for retaliation for a new law in the u.s. that seeks to punish russians for human rights violations. the ban will take effect on january 1st, that's really right away it would halt all new adoptions and end those already in progress. incredible. a lot of families in the process of adopting children in russia. >> those poor kids. >>> want to move on to the weather. lots of snow, wind, hail everywhere across the u.s. the storm that brought snow and spun off tornadoes is still not over. ten deaths blamed on the storm. more than 2,400 flights have been canceled. it could dump more snow on new england and upstate new york today. boy, they don't need that. bonnie schneider with a look at the forecast. good morning. >> good morning. the storm we've been talking about is working its way to extreme northeastern new england. it is hitting canada hard. quebec is getting more snow. i mentioned yesterday that cold air would come in behind the system. it sure has. scranton at 26. be
, thanks very much. we're looking by the way on left-hand side of your screen live on the floor of the u.s. senate. don't you know, not much happening there. patti ann: all right. republican congressman louie gohmert is responding to those comments from senator reid that we just heard, firing back at accusations that republicans are refusing to compromise. let's listen. >> i can totally sympathize with reid's remark that he can not imagine our consciences in the house because you would have to have one to imagine ours. and he has shown repeatedly, over three years of no budget? come on. the guy has to have no conscience or he would have been embarrassed and given up leadership on his own if he had any conscience whatsoever. we have passed a bill to deal with the fiscal cliff. harry reid is becoming the ultimate cliff diver here by saying we're not going to even let our house, the senate house function. we're going to dive off the cliff and blame the republicans at every ledge down the way. gregg: cliff diving a new political sport. and senator lindsey graham also speaking out suggesting th
in the assault on the u.s. consulate there. while susan rice was not responsible for security of the consulate, she did go on sunday shows and talk about the u.s. response there and she has been accused of deliberately mischaracterizing what happened. all sides -- or the white house has adamantly insisted and she has insisted that she in no way deliberately mischaracterized what happened. she was reading from unclassified talking points and nonetheless this has been caught up in a back and forth and, wolf, if i may, i'm going to read from part of her statement, her letter to the president and what she wrote in part, i am now convinced that the confirmation process will be lengthy, disruptive, and costly to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities. that tradeoff is simply not worth it to our country. the secretary of state may never be politicized. she says, i look forward to building on progress in your second term which seems to leave the door open to the possibility she could serve in the administration in the second term and according to my sources there has been s
criticism over her first response to the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya. margaret brennan is at the state department. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. cbs news has learned susan rice privately began expressing doubts about her nomination to friends this week saying the attacks had reached a fevered pitch. then yesterday she had a phone conversation with president obama and withdrew her name from consideration as secretary of state. >> i would have been very honored to serve in that job, just as i'm delighted to do what i'm doing. but yes, sure how can you not want to in my field serve at the highest possible level? >> reporter: last night u.n. ambassador susan rice explained why she asked president obama not to consider her for secretary of state. in an op-ed she wrote, quote, a national security appointment, much less a potential one, should never be turned into a political football. there are far bigger issues at stake. on twitter she posted those of you who know me know that i'm a fighter, but not at th
't see the house doing that. look, with $16 trillion in debt and growing every minute, the u.s. governmental is obviously looking for ways to reduce it. that is the whole point in this thing. president is proposing new spending, more spending, has that convinced some people on the hill, that is your beat, that he is either not serious about negotiating or is naive about how economically grave the situation really is? >> the parties are divided in a way that i element never seen in many years covering capitol hill. republicans telling me they were more than willing to talk about a tax rate increase. even some of the most conservative members but what they felt they needed to see was sizable spending cuts and talk of entitlement reform which is major driver of the nation's debt but none of that has come forward. with democrats are not even in that level of conversation now. they do not want major cuts and they don't want to touch medicare or social security or medicaid. but republicans say you need to start tackling now. >> gregg: the president has ignored recommendations from hi
secretary leon panetta announcing that the u.s. is sending patriot missiles and troops to turkey to deal with the growing threat from the neighboring syria. 400 troops will join nato forces and stand ready to act if syria intends to unleash chemical weapons. fox's leland vittert is in our middle east bureau. leland, just a few days ago the head of nato said the assad regime is about to collapse. why deploy these troops now? >> reporter: it really has to do with showing solidarity with the turks who are clearly very scared and timing comes a couple days after we learned that the syrians were mixing chemical weapons to possibly use. so this is the united states and nato's way of really get being behind turkey, a close ally saying we support you. the secretary of defense was quick to point out that the patriot missiles are just that, defensive weapons that will be put down along the syrian border to protect syria, protect turkey from attacks by syrian jets or scud missiles that would fly in but that is not exactly the whole story. the patriots could be easily programmed and put in a no-fly
it blasted off the west coast and the u.s. military which monitors the activity of that isolated nation says it looked like an object was placed into orbit. so let's get up-to-date. chris lawrence is at the pentagon. >> we're getting better and new information about that north korean launch. u.s. officials now saying that the satellite that north korea put into space is now in polar orbit. norad has been monitoring it with its space sensors. remember, they tried a rocket launch earlier this year back in april. they did not have much success. this is the first time they have seen all three stages of that rocket launch work and be able to put a satellite into orbit. it sounds very benign, putting a satellite into orbit is not something that you would think of that has military connotations. but the same technology that you use to put a satellite into orbit is really the same kind of technology that you would use to build a long range nuclear missile. >> and the timing appears to have been some kind of surprise to u.s. officials. how worried is the pentagon right now after this launch? >> well,
of the economy. the average number of people in the u.s. seeking unemployment benefits over the past month fell to the lowest level since march of 2008. it's a sign that the job market may be healing. the report included a caveat though for the latest week. president obama declared monday a holiday for federal workers and many state offices followed suit and were unable to provide complete data for last week's jobless claims. gregg: well a very important ruling over the so-called contraceptive mandate in the health care law. the u.s. supreme court has denied accident -- the request by the christian owned hobby lobby, for a requirement to provide contraception coverage and the fines that come with that if the company does not comply. jonah goldberg, editor-at-large at "national review" and fox news contributor. jonah, what do you make of the supreme court saying, we don't want to decide this? >> yeah, sort of a more complicated story. it was really justice sotomayor as the justice who oversees the 10th service denying request for injunction to basically stop the law being implemented for the hob
that they are not allowed to be in this country, the u.s. congress in 1988 passed something called the undetectable firearms act. it said basically, your gun has to be detektble in an x-ray scanner. it has to have the equivalent x-ray signature of 3.7 ounces of stain res steel, even if you take out the magazine and the stock and the grips. even with those parts taken off, the remaining guts of the gun need to have a substantial metal component. so they will be seen on an x-ray machine. because of that law, we do not have fully plastic guns. that law was first passed in 1988. it was not particularly controversial. the vote in the house on that was 413 to 4. and president ronald reagan signed it. and tyranny was not unleashed upon the land. it is not controversial now that it is illegal to manufacture or sell a gun in the united states that is built to evade detection by standard means. we don't have plastic guns. we banned plastic guns. the ban has been renewed several times since. it is up for renewal again next year. when it comes up for renewal next year. rjs changing laws about guns in this country. it's

by the new york times says that because tax rates are lower now than under president reagan, the u.s. can afford to raise taxes and our next guest says not so fast. are they missing the overall point? joining us is james freeman with the editorial board. nice to see you. >> good to be here. >> do you take the new york times at its word here on the research about the tax burden, during the reagan years, we have some graphics to show us some different family incomes here on the upper echelon. homes making $350,000 a year and now they're paying about 42% of income compared with 49% back in 1980? so they're saving money and that goes on all of the tax brackets, middle class and lower class, do you agree with that or do you think the new york times is missing the overall point here. >> as far as the numbers analysis, there's a lot of examination of that over the next few days, for the moment let's accept that everything they've said is true. the real point is the context here because what ronald reagan did was start a worldwide movement toward lower tax rates and growth followed. a lot of peop

and there were more swing districts and house races, more swing states on u.s. ballot for senate there would be more political inacceptive for republicans to feel as if, you know, they have a losing happened right now, they better cut their losses, cut it cut the best deal they can with the president, go home. their incentive may be not to do that and that is something that republicans privately are trying to at the time white house, really talking past each other, yes the president has the national sort of voters, the national mood on his side, but the people that are electing these guys to congress and the ones up for re-election, mitch mcconnell, a state like ken keep, the president won four counties. what insensitive does he have? he will not be rewarded for compromising too much with the president. >> chuck that's really interesting. like at your poll, you asking foam define the gop, they say bad, weak, negative, broken, lost, think about the tax issue, susan rice you can the right to work issue, it appears the gop didn't learn anything in the election, still want to be the anti-governm
